Mike Scott

Senior Partner

As Senior Partner and chair of the Board, I am responsible for leading on the firm’s strategic direction. I work with the Managing Partner, the Board and the rest of the firm to develop and nurture our purpose, our characteristics and our values with a view to creating our long term vision and the strategic objectives that we aspire to meet in order to achieve that vision. 


We put our clients and our people at the heart of everything we do, whilst mindful of the positive impact that we can make on our communities, our society and our environment. My ambition is to help create a positive and dynamic environment which encourages and enables everyone to fulfil their potential and more. I am absolutely committed to ensuring that our clients are delighted with the service they receive from us and that they are constantly surprised by the positive experience that we create for them. I spend a lot of time with our clients making sure that we deliver that experience in the way that they would expect. Part of my job is to make connections, whether by putting our clients in touch with other parts of the business or with other businesses that can help them thrive.


In terms of my practice area, I advise landowners, investors, developers, occupiers and individuals in relation to a wide range of property related issues that need resolving whether by negotiation, alternative dispute resolution or litigation. Clients come to me because I give them clear and practical advice whilst being relentless in pursuit of their objectives. My expertise includes easement and covenant disputes, development-related disputes (overages/options) and neighbourly issues (including rights to light and party walls) as well as the full range of commercial and residential landlord and tenant issues.
